Numpty brake line question ???

I want to fit some better brakes to my T8 in the next few days. I've got the uprated master cylinders and I've lovely Brembo billet calipers to go on - but I don't know about the hoses.

The bike has currently got twin Goodridge braided hoses running from a double banjo at the M/C end to the standard calipers.

The M/C end is no problem because I'm replacing that with an ST4S unit - almost identical to standard but bigger bore and pumps more fluid.

However, I can't remember the hose fitment at the standard calliper end. Straight? 10 degree? 90 degree? I can't look at the bike because it's in Fordie's garage 10 miles away and I haven't got any photos of the bike that show the lines clearly enough.

The billet callipers look as if they'll need 90 degree ones, so with a bit of luck if the standard ones do too, then I can just use the same hoses, otherwise I'll have to get some more made up.

Jools - can't help with your specific question, but I'd advise against alloy fittings. As well as looking a bit "naff" (IMHO) they might cause you some grief at MOT time (I was told last test they're not for road use, and tend to corrode...). I plan to change mine for stainless.

I think the stock hoses have a 90 degree banjo Jools.

I think the banjo and bleed are the same thread. Might make fitting a little easier

Goodridge have the pattern for my hoses nut I have a Brembo M/C. if 100% honest, I am still not heppy with the installation and will be riding down to exeter at some point so they can meke me up some that are spot on.

Rgds, Rob

Nelly`s right Jools,the threads are the same.I`d personally do it the way Jasper has,direct into the caliper,it looks cleaner and is in keeping with the "era"
All you do is swap the bleed nipple around,I`d defo run twin lines, looks cooler and more symetrical.
I quite like the blue anodised fittings(like Natty`s and as per race bikes of the time)but if not the black like Jasper`s if you`re not confident enough to we bright colours

You will find the billets work really well Bendix pads from Nelly and cast iron floaters

Jasper's pic shows the standard position for the bleed nipples and hoses.
